Full disclosure, I may not like everything that Apple does, but I will miss the man. The world is smaller from his loss, but it is closer thanks to his contributions.

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it."

I'll keep it in mind, Steve.

It looks like the man in the last panel is more shocked by Question Duck's question than the news... In fact, I think Question Duck's question might come off a bit offensive, as if he's also suggesting that "Steve Jobs wasn't creative."

I don't really like Apple myself, but I do feel sorry over this.

@ Crys

I think the guy in the last panel is just shocked about just reading the news, and we see that even Duck is sad.

R.I.P., Steve.

Because the question is needed

I think Question duck's question is very appropriate. In the wake of the passing of such a creative person, one who's vision has multiplied the creative output of so many, it apropos to ask. Can such creativity be trained, or is it an ineffable quality that only can develop on it's own?

Alright, I take it back then.

Though it still looks like the guy is starring at Question Duck, because of the position of his head and eyes.

Poor Steve Jobs ;;

'tis a sad, sad day.

But to 'answer' ducky's question; I don't believe creativity can be taught. It can be encouraged, guided, and nurtured where it naturally occurs.

creativity is such, that its learnt by taking an already existing idea, and combining it with another existing idea.

combine a kite and a boat and you get a boatkite. it saves around 30% on oil and uses the wind like in the old days to save up HUGe amount of the cost of oil and energy to run a cargoboat for example.

most manga and anime has this

Everyone has creativity and imagination - just look at the play of any toddler to grade schooler.
The thing is it is usually quashed and not encouraged outside of very set up boundaries.
Society is lucky to have any creativity at all considering how it is now set up.
We are even more lucky to have the number of scientists and engineers that we do considering the peer / social pressures counter to their development.
Name calling, derision and scapegoating as dangerous, anyone with a modicum of intelligence and learning.

Steve was a strong person who did what he did despite all that, as opposed to that other guy who used non-ethical business practices to get where he is and then wear the mantle of creative intelligentsia and nice guy.

They will be holding the door open to the eye of the needle for Steve who will enter with a smile.

I hear that. Good man, hardworking man. The world could always use another Steve Jobs.
